Since 2006, the streets have been OAKOAK’s favourite playground. The French street artist likes to create poetic and often funny characters and situations about mundane urban elements, hoping to put a smile on the faces of passers-by. He draws his inspiration from the 1980s and 1990s pop and geek culture. The Simpsons, Calvin & Hobbes, and Super Mario Bros. are a few of his all-time favourites. In 2015 and 2016, OAKOAK has created Street Art for Schiphol Airport and the Street Art Museum both in Amsterdam, the Netherlands; and in Puerto de la Cruz, Spain, for Puerto Street Art. His first exhibition was organized by Lazarides Outsiders Gallery in Newcastle, England, in 2012. He has had solo shows in France and Chicago. His work has been published in many books about Street Art and in books such as Urban Interventions: Personal Projects in Public Places (2010), and magazines Graffiti Art and Juxtapoz. According to Graffiti Art, “OAKOAK’s only form of activism is that of having fun”.
